Before this thread gets out of hand, there are NO talks of furloughs, or hiring for that matter, at this time. There are many who are SPECULATING that UPS may attempt a furlough, but that is all that it is right now - speculation. I can't say (because I have NO idea) what will or will not happen in the future, but nothing is planned for now. If anything is going to happen, we will probably know more in the 1st QT 2009. Nothing will happen before that.I heard the F word from a very senior SDF MD-11 CA while jumpseating, so maybe not so soon. One can only hope this economy will rebound quickly.
I'm guessing displacement bid...we never have vacancy bids anymore...but if we do, the over 60 guys can get more seats...I wonder how many are left on the 8 panel who haven't taken an upgrade already...
The speculation on furloughs and mitigation strategy are just that SPECULATION. I don't know why everyone is talking furloughs. We are still making money and even Friedman couldn't figure what is going to happen with the economy.
Yeah but unless they got christ himself to bless those hard working brown trucks to drive on water, there would have been no international expansion. Don't think that UPS management didn't try to resurrect him and pay him to do something that . My glass is getting emptier and emptier.....UPS made money before they ever had anything to do with aviation. Go figure!
